Redefining Airmanship


Redefining Airmanship" offers the first concrete model of the abstract ideal of "airmanship," and gives the reader step-by-step guidance for self-appraisal and improvement in the areas of flight proficiency, teamwork, and good judgment in crisis situations. The author, Major Anthony Kern, draws on his extensive flight and crew-training experience in the US Air Force, but his model is invaluable for all pilots, whether military, recreational, or commercial. "Kern's work is a breakthrough, and a benchmark." -John J. Nance, author of "Blind Trust".

Author of Blind Trust and ABC News Aviation Consultant "Kern hits the mark with the focus on individual responsibility and airmanship..." "There is no improvement like self-improvement, and "Airmanship" hits the critical points on complacency, discipline, and pilot judgment" Brigadier General Chuck Yeager
